Summary of Program

On December 1, 2015, a sweeping set of amendments to the Federal Civil Rules will take effect.  These amendments grew out of a nationwide concern that the cost of civil litigation in federal courts had become prohibitively high, and that discovery demands and obligations were no longer commensurate with the stakes involved in the case.  This program outlines those amendments from the perspective of Bench and Bar, and examines how the changes may further the promise of Federal Civil Rule One for “the just, speedy, and inexpensive determination of every action and proceeding.”
